"This book offers a load of educational material, delivering useful morsels of information that was new even to someone who has been using Office for years."
"The reality is that todays Office is too big for anyone except the REAL experts to know everything, and having a good reference manual is crucial to your success with the advanced functionality of the suite. My reference is certainly this book
as the sub-title read, it really is the book that should have been in the box!"
"This is an excellent resource to obtain before you begin to look for a home, and it will help guide you through the process of making the biggest financial investment of your life. Highly Recommended."
"Thorough, clear, practical."
"This is one of the best buyer's markets in quite some time. It's tempting to buy a house right now. But before you rush off to buy, it might be a good idea to read this great book, Buying a Home: The Missing Manual, by Nancy Conner."
"The amount of information might be a bit overwhelming for the newly green, but the specificity is helpful. Beside almost every tip given is the URL address of a website with additional information about the topic."
"If everyone read this book, and
followed its advice the world would be a better place...and it would be around a lot longer. It's time for green living to be taken seriously, and this
book is an excellent start."
"This is a wonderful manual to find EVERYTHING that you need to start Living Green one step at a time."
"This all-in-one resource is packed with practical advice on ways you can help the environment by making simple changes in your home routine, work habits, and the way you shop and get around town. "
"For those concerned about global warming, agribusiness, and the sustainability of Western Culture, Living Green will prove indispensable. The book has already found a prominent, permanent location on my bookshelf."
"If you have the tiniest yearning or inkling (and guilt will also do nicely) to become more actively green, check out Living Green: The Missing Manual. And if you are a whiz, doubter, slacker, or disbeliever, this book will speak to you, too. Nancy Conner's book is an amazing resource and packed with about 100 websites (maybe more) that focus on various solutions and opportunities for green living. "
"Never before in the history of humanity do we understand more clearly how our lifestyles affect the earth. Ironically, however, we have less and less time in which to change our ways, which is why books like Living Green: The Missing Manual are so important."
"...a comprehensive resource for greening your life with such topics as creating an earth-friendly home, green transportation and how to green a business to alternative and renewable energy, 'Living Green' goes beyond 'do's and don'ts.' It contains an array of tips, ideas and resources wrapped in an easy-to-read format."
"Living Green: The Missing Manual is an outstanding hands-on guide about the environmentally-friendly lifestyle...Living Green: The Missing Manual is an information-rich, factually-accurate and friendly guide to a greener, healthier, and better life."
"Conner works hard to cover a lot of topics and gives you material on everything from the chemicals you may not know about in your home to alternate and renewable energy sources. Along the way she also covers raising a green family (I raised two kids via cloth diapers and was
happy to see them covered), building/remodeling, eating green, responsible shopping, and a number of other topics."
"If you're moving to Google Apps, you should make this a priority purchase. "
"They hit a home run with Google Apps, The Missing Manual (Nancy Conner) is 700+pages of well-organized, well-illustrated & well-explained descriptions of what's in the family of Google online applications & services. Bottom line: Google Apps, The Missing Manual and Google Apps Hacks are two great choices for people with a more than casual interest in using Google online applications."
"...this book is not called a Missing Manual for nothing-- pretty much every application is covered in detail and many common tasks are explained step by step. Tutorials range from the relatively straight-forward like syncing your Google Calendar together to Exchange or exporting email contacts to more involved tasks such as creating themes for iGoogle. It is this wealth of step by step tutorials that really makes this book useful.
"It was inevitable. Google's applications are so widely used that it was certain that there would be a "Missing Manuals" book about them sooner or later. Nancy Conner's contribution to the MM series shows just how powerful Google Apps can be, and how businesses as well as
individuals can get the most out of everything that Google has developed."
